Specialties

Dr. Karen L Palmer has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Are you looking for a doctor who cares?

Dr. Karen Palmer is simply a very caring, very focused physician. Her genuine empathy for my general health reminds me of the family doctors I grew up with in the 1950s and 60s. IQ is one thing, EQ (Emotional Quotient) is another. Dr. Palmer is exemplar in both.
